Product info

Pinguicula primuliflora ‘Rose’ is a carnivorous plant from the butterwort plant family (Lentibulariaceae). This cultivated plant grows nowhere in the wild. The species produces a rosette of egg shaped to oval, bright green leaves. The upper side of the leaves is covered with many glands producing a sticky substance where insects could be caught with. The insects are digested on top of the leaves, the nutrients available are used by the plant. Once per year, mostly in spring, one to several flower stalks are produced, carrying a single purple flower with a bright yellow heart. Unlike other species within this genus, the flowers of this plant have multiple rows of tepals. Flowers are somewhat similar to the flower of a primrose, hence the name. Propagation is done by repotting the smaller rosettes forming near the base of the mature plant, or seeds.
